Ingredients

  • 8 slices whole wheat bread

  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Method

Cut crusts off bread. Using rolling pin, roll each slice to 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Fit each into lightly greased 6-oz (175 mL) custard cup or jumbo muffin pan. Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven until golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, carrot, celery, red pepper, salt, thyme and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 2 minutes. Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Whisk in stock, milk and vinegar; cook, whisking often, until thickened enough to coat back of spoon, about 10 minutes.

Add chicken and peas; cook until bubbly and peas are tender, about 3 minutes. To serve, ladle into toast cups.
